Question about Lexmark X83 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Will not print

Printer stopped working, all three quality lights are on, message displayed is CARTRIGDE SHORT Press power key. Printer cycles and message X83 by Lexmark V5.79 is displayed and changes to SYSTEM ERROR 000. Then changes back to X83 by Lexmark V5.79. I have unpluged the power cord and the USB and still get the same messages.

Message reads "cartridge short press power key"


The error indicates that one or both of the cartridges has a short circuit. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix the problem:

1. Make sure the printer is on.

2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer/unplug the printer from the power source and then slide the carrier to the center.

3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.

4. Close the printer cover.

5. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.

7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.

8. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.
If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

    I installed new color and black ink cartridges and keep getting: color cartridge short. Press power key. Hence, the printer will not work.


    It could be a "short-circuit" type of electronic problem inside the colour cartridge.
    Turn the printer off.
    Remove the colour cartridge.
    Purchase a new colour cartridge.
    Insert it.
    Turn the printer on.
    If you still get the error, take the printer to a qualified technician.

    Carrier Stall is the error


    Hi,
    Please do the following..

    To check the cartridge carrier:
    1. Unplug the printer.
    2. Move the cartridges to the left by hand and then take them out.
    3. Try to print without the cartridges in the carrier. Do you still receive a Carrier Stall error message?
    4. If not, put the cartridges back into the carrier and snap them in at the back. The message should no longer appear.
    If the power light on the printer is not blinking, the error message may be caused by a communication error. Do the following:
    1. Remove any other devices attached to the USB/LPT port.
    2. Uninstall the Lexmark printer.
    3. Connect the printer directly to the PC and ensure that power is being supplied to the printer.
    4. Reinstall the printer.
    Thank you....

    Try this:
    Checking the print quality:
    1. Press the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel.
    2. Press the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT and press Menu/Set or Set.

    4. Press Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP begins printing the Print Quality Test Sheet.
    5. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the print quality needs improvement.
    6. Closely examine the print quality of the four color blocks that are formed by short diagonal lines on the Test Sheet.
      If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (YES) and press Stop/Exit.
      If you can see missing short lines, press 2 (NO) and go to Step 7.
    7. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors. Press 2 (NO) for black or three colors with the problem.
    8. The display will then show START CLEANING? 1.YES 2. NO.
      Press 1 (YES) and the MFC will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.
    9. After the cleaning is finished, press Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP will print another Print Quality Test Sheet.
    10. If you can see missing short lines in any of the four color blocks press 2 (NO) and repeat the quality check and cleaning process. Repeat this procedure at least 5 times if print quality remains a problem. If short lines are still missing after the fifth cleaning and test print, replace the necessary ink cartridges. If the print quality of the 4 color blocks is OK, press 1 (YES).
    Setting the Alignment:
    1. Press the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel.
    2. Press the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT and press Menu/Set or Set.

    4. Press Black (Mono) Start or Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP begins printing the Alignment Check Sheet.
    5. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the alignment needs adjustment.
    6. Examine the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI test prints on the Alignment Check Sheet. If the number 5 sample of both the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI most closely matches the 0 sample, press 1 (YES).
      If one of the other samples is a better match for the 0 sample, press 2 (NO). The display will then prompt you to select the sample that most closely matches the 0 sample for 600 DPI and then 1200 DPI.
    7. Press Stop/Exit.
      If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please RATE it.
